I cant explain how appreciative i am of your honesty. I admire that and i think i am scared to show it. There are things to lie about, like the ability to speak polish but the truth is that you listen and your really honest when it counts. Some people call me crazy, like my dad last night, but i'm not crazy i'm just trying not to live in a box. You recognizing that says a lot and i don't think you should underestimate yourself. My thoughts, insightful as they may be can sometimes make me feel like im carrying around a 1960's 200 pound sewing machine with me everywhere. When i'm with you i feel much lighter but still mindful. The combination of our forces... fucking LETHAL. I found the quote that i was trying to tell you about,"I have made this letter longer than usual, only because I have not had time to make it shorter." excuse my excess... because i cant articulate just how i feel yet in a 200 character limited text message. If i could then i would have mastered the art of writing. You may be a better writer than you think because everytime i get a text from you it makes me smile.

"School... now seems to me perhaps the most authoritarian and dangerous of all the social inventions of mankind. It is the deepest foundation of the modern slave state, in which most people feel themselves to be nothing but producers, consumers, spectators, and 'fans,' driven more and more, in all parts of their lives, by greed, envy, and fear. My concern is not to improve 'education' but to do away with it, to end the ugly and antihuman business of people-shaping and to allow and help people to shape themselves."

Throwing out some old yearbooks i came across these. Its funny to see what kids might percieve to be admirable ambitions. I never got to write one but when i was in fifth grade i would probably wrote something like this: When i grow up i want to live with my fairy in the woods. We would go shopping every day at the palisades mall.
